School Meals

September 2020 Information regarding school meals and packed lunches

School dinners will be provided for those who want it. Some may need to pay and some will be on free school meals.

 

Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will automatically have a free school meal provided which is part of a government initiative. Children in other classes will either have free school meals or will need to pay. A school meal costs £2.30 per day which is £11.50 per week.

 

Sometimes parents choose to make a packed lunch for their child/ren. This needs to be healthy and needs to come to school in a packed lunch box with your child’s name on it. If you would like to change from a packed lunch to a school meal, please let the office know as it impacts on food orders. Food is ordered in advance so if you want to change from school meals to packed lunches we will need at least a week’s notice. Any queries, please ring the school office.

 

We are planning to set up an electronic payment system to help you in this brave new world we find ourselves in. This will take time to set up. In the meantime, I will receive payments for dinner money on the first Friday back (Friday 4th September) and then every Monday and Wednesday until the cashless system is up and running. Dinner money can only be accepted if it is in a sealed envelope which must contain the right amount as change cannot be given. The envelope must have on it your child’s name, class, amount of money inside and the words ‘DINNER MONEY’. You will be informed when the new payment system is available.

 

Changes to school dinners due to COVID 19:

  • All nursery and reception children on school dinners will continue to be given chef’s hot choice meal. They will eat their food in the school hall at different times.
  • Years 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 will all eat their meals in their classrooms supervised by class staff.
  • Food will be delivered ‘deliveroo’ style. This means that there will be a little less choice in Autumn 1.
  • There will be one hot choice and a range of sandwich options. There will also be salad, fruit and puddings.
  • Children will be able to choose their meals for the week ahead.

 

If there are any dietary needs, please make sure the office staff know and we will ensure that kitchen staff are fully aware of children’s needs.

Thank you for your continued patience and support.
